Using Magazines for Scrapbook Inspiration

Enter magazines.  I was flipping through an issue of Travel and Leisure Magazine, dreaming about taking another vacation, when *poof* – inspiration!

  1. I just watched the movie the Lorax with the family this weekend. The colors in the movie were so inspiring and Im wondering if there is a way for me to recreate the trees in the movie. I tend to shy away from bright colors but I will definitely be trying something. I like the inspiration you found in the travel magazine it’s right up alley as well!

      • I would have to say color is my biggest challenge when it comes to utilizing the bright colors. They scare me for some reason. 🙂

      • Maybe try using some fun color palettes for inspiration? There are tons of them on Pinterest! Or, take a picture you want to use in a layout and extract bright colors from it.
